Niña Luisita: a barkentine born nobel
Pietro Bagietto founded the shipyard named after him in 1854 in the coastal city of Varazze, not too far form Geneva.
It was after almost 80 years of activity – in 1930 – when the Count Lorenzo Bruzzo, who belonged to a wealthy Genovese family, ordered a barkentine of 20m. Vittorio Vicenzo Baglieto, the founder’s grandson and then actual owner of the shipyard, got inspired for the building of this ship from the boats designed by Charles Nicholson, the worldwide famous naval engineer and British builder.
The lines of the hull ara traditional with a wide wet surface. Though, the stem turns out to be inclined, whichs proves the influence of the Count Lorenzo in the design.

With this rigging ccalled Staysail Schooner, the Fisherman sail becomes easier to use because there is no need to hoist and hold down in every board change. This feature makes the ship faster.
